Loss of sense of taste
December 26, 2011 5:56 AM Subscribe
I just heard from a friend in another state that she suddenly lost her sense of taste, or at least it altered noticeably. She said she has no other symptoms, does not have a cold or congestion, but sweet tastes less sweet and she has to put lots of salt on anything else to give it taste, which she does not normally do. She is in her early 50s, mostly healthy, and is now visiting relatives for a few days. then will be taking a long drive back home. Any ideas what this could be, and could it be serious?
